Bodies, bodies! Big and small, short and tall, young and old—Every BODY is different!

The text has been updated to reflect current understandings of gender and inclusion, which are also

Editorial Reviews

“Current, engaging and offers a safe space for parents, caregivers, and educators to talk about human beings and their bodies. Highly Recommended.” 

— CM Reviews, 02/12/21

“A beautiful and important addition to any collection of body books.” 

— Kirkus Reviews, *starred review, 12/29/20

“Melissa Cho makes our bodies a celebration of boldness, in colour and shape, and helps to ensure that every child will see themselves and those important to them.” 

— CanLit for Little Canadians, 03/24/21

“A joyous and empowering book that should be welcomed by many seeking such volumes to teach their kids about bodies and their parts, but also about human diversity broadly speaking. It’s a must-have for any young child’s bookshelf.” 

— Mombian, 03/10/21
